We held our daughters sweet sixteen here and it was perfect! We had the whole place to ourselves but really only needed 3 areas. We were able to decorate how we wanted and it's just lovely year round. Go in December to see Festival of Trees.

I've been visiting this home since childhood. Its fun to walk the beautifully furnished rooms. The gardens are nice for pictures. Its pretty event oriented. The attic serves as a multi purpose space.

In the past, I have been here for tea but this time we visited the Turner Dodge House during its Third Annual Festival of Trees. There were over 30 decorated Christmas trees throughout the three floors. Each tree is uniquely decorated. The Christmas lights... More

I have been here a few times, once in the summer for the annual Lansing Be a Tourist in Your Own Town event and once in the winter for a tea party. My summer visit was nice, lots of people walking around and the house was in great shape. My friends and I explored the house on our own self-tour... More

I went there for a relaxing day of tea and crumpets by invitation. Once I arrived as I entered I heard the screeching of parrots, being a lover of birds I sought out the origin of this sound. My journey took me into a dark room where an octogenarian fight club was taking place, The room was permeated with the... More

My husband and I went for one of the tea events they had awhile back and we had a wonderful time. They had live music, delicious tea, great snacks to go with it and afterwards we got to freely roam/tour the house and the yard. Beautiful place. :)

We attended a baby shower here and it was a beautiful perfect setting! There was a gorgeous sitting room where we watched the mother to be open gifts, a dining room and a kitchen.

We came to the Turner-Dodge House for the Xmas tree competition. The rooms are beautiful & well maintained. There isn't much to do in the East Lansing-Lansing area (we moved from Los Angeles), so this small hour-long trip to the house was a nice family activity.

Lovely old house superbly preserved provides a look into the old days of Lansing. Excellent tours with interesting stories of the auto-industry family.
